January 23, 2006
'5 times', 'Sold to USA', 'Where were you in Istanbul?', 'We are the champions, champions of Europe'...
For the whole after, these 'slogans' were flying around Old Trafford, the home ground to Manchester United. We, the United supporters, were silenced for 89minutes and did not even bothered to have a fight, as we were tactically outfought by the visitors on the pitch. Yet…3 points is 3 points, we won the game at last, with the great header from our £29.1m defender Rio Ferdinand. He and Wes Brown were phenomenal in the match, together with Patrice Evra and Gary Neville, they defended the United goal with iron nerves. It is of course worth mentioned that Ruud Vanistelrooy and John O'Shea were invisible throughout the match and should be got rid of from the squad.
Anyway, a very exciting afternoon ending with lots of songs and dances. Sitting so close to the Liverpool fans brought me some new insights into counter-attacking humiliations – with joy!!!
'1–0!!!!' 'United!!!' 'Relax, we've just scored!!!'
And, this weekend…
I'm sorry for being mad and over-worrying and insensitive. I should have considered your feelings before I do anything. I'm sorry for making you sad. I believe you've had a bad impression about me after this and I hope you know that's the real me, I'm not hiding and not going to hide any of my feelings from you. I'm glad that you are telling your stories as well, after an intriguing introduction and preface. I'm looking forward to listening to them and should I be given the chance, I'd love to finish the book with you.
